Can Joomla! 1.5 operate with PHP Safe Mode On?
PDF Print E-mail

Yes it can! This is a significant security improvement.

As files normally are created either by the Joomla! application or by FTP access, the combination of PHP file actions and the FTP Layer allows Joomla! to operate in PHP Safe Mode.
